  9. Thank you for the nice comments. I have shot these this month, sometimes I go out just looking for these little wonders, there are an abundance at some of my favorite prairies.This time of year they do start thinking about migrations and will soon leave.In the fall I tag Monarchs as part of a program with the U of Kansas, watching their migration to Mexico.

  10. What a wonderful assortment - I love that blue one (well Red-spotted Purple, but it looks blue).

  11. I always say that butterflies are the flowers of the animal kingdom, but your term, flying flowers is a better way of saying it. I think I'll begin to use that one too. I hope it catches on.

  12. All of your images are outstanding! This is the first summer that butterflies have regularly visited my Hummingbird feeder.
    I also enjoyed your heartfelt poem and agree that we must do something "now" to stop loss of habitat. Our future generations are depending on us.
